it's very relieving to see that other photographers can create beautiful shots without expensive equipment.
I've been looking into alternatives for now until I can buy an external flash, and your juicebox flash extender looks amazing.

Sorry to bother you, but how do you use macro filters on cameras? I understand that they help you get a better macro shot, but where does it actually go?
Great tutorial by the way! :aww:

You screw them on the top end of your lens. Usually you would then need to auto-focus, but it's easy to get used to that :)

love it!:] i got my new filters the ones you recommend buying and i love them! wow they make a differ! on the box where they come in it says to try many styles and combine the filters together! i tried that but the lens do not focus at all...:O so i only do 2 at a time not sure if im doing it right though,....but my fave is the 10+ because i love really close up piks! why do they give you the 1+ 2+ 4+ 10+ if all we need is a 10+ lol i love it! :] thanks for the tutorial and thanks for the idea of using a flash extender tutorial too i kept on getting the pictures dark on the bottom b.c the flash did not reach!:D

Oh that's great to hear! :D Yeah I really only use the 10+ one as well, but I guess it's good to have the other.. just in case lol did you try to auto focus? I only use manual focus with those lenses as my camera can't seem to focus at all with the filters attached.
